Accutane side effects

I've been on Accutane for 15 days and have got every side effect imaginable.

I've gotten persistent headaches, nausea, vomiting,  yeast infection,  diarrhea,  stomach cramps,  lower back pain,  weird stomach gurgling and my skin is completely freaking out and my skin is the worst it's ever been! 

Will thing's get better or will i experience these until my treatment is complete?  I don't know if i can do this for 6 months.  Any advice would be very much appreciated.

My side effects (headache, diorrhea) settled down after a couple of weeks.  I just had the dryness & redness throughout. And a bit of stiffness. 

I didn't have an initial breakout though. 

No  matter what, the result you get will be worth it. 

I have a diary on here and have posted a pic of my lovely new skin!

Good luck.

My side effects were extreme dryness, muscle pain, constipation and fatigue. The tiredness went away after a month but my constipation lasted throughout the whole course. 

Yep, that's the initial breakout of the medication. I had that experience too. But trust me it will go away soon as before you know it you'll be clearer than ever! Just hang in there, I know it's hard..:but it will all be worth it in the end. 

My advice is to just keep staying strong. I wish you luck.
